The concept of pricing ecosystem services and allowing them to be bought and sold has gained wide acceptance among conservationists in recent years.

 

Excellent article in Yale's Environment 360 on the debate about pricing of natural capital.

Putting a price on the rivers and rain diminishes us all

Putting a price on the rivers and rain diminishes us all | The P2P Daily | Scoop.it

"By turning the natural world into a subsidiary of the corporate economy, it reasserts the biblical doctrine of dominion. It slices the biosphere into component commodities: already the government's task force is talking of "unbundling" ecosystem services, a term borrowed from previous privatisations. This might make financial sense; it makes no ecological sense. The more we learn about the natural world, the more we discover that its functions cannot be safely disaggregated."

 

Good article by George Monbiot on the monetisation of nature.
